Christmas in SC will bring wet weather, some snow

COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) - Christmas weather across South Carolina could be wet and nasty, with some snow likely upstate.

National Weather Service meteoroglist Scott Krentz says one to two inches of accumulation in the Greenville-Spartanburg region are likely by Saturday night or early Sunday morning.

The precipitation will likely start as rain or sleet Christmas Day, changing into snow by the afternoon.

The weather service also says there's a chance of snow in the midlands area around Columbia on Saturday and along the coast on Sunday.

Both areas will likely see cold rain, but there's a chance it could turn to light snow late Saturday or early Sunday.
